Campus Technology Council Guiding Principles


PEDAGOGICAL INNOVATION. The information technology infrastructure should respond to student and faculty needs by providing a flexible and transformative educational experience.

RESEARCH INNOVATION. The information technology infrastructure should respond to the evolving needs of the research community by providing flexible and adaptable solutions to support scholarly inquiry; research data analysis, storage, transport, and management; and computational capacity.

ADMINISTRATIVE FUNCTIONALITY. The information technology structure should provide a robust platform for improving the effectiveness and efficiency of critical administrative functions at the University.

IMPACT AND VALUE. The information technology infrastructure should be accessible, synergistic, scalable, and innovative.

SUSTAINABILITY. The information technology infrastructure should maximize efficiencies to reduce energy usage. Educating the campus community on the efficient use of information technology should be a part of promoting a sustainable environment at the UO.

VIABILITY. Information technology services should have sufficient resources to ensure full lifecycle support from requirements management through design, implementation, continuing maintenance and support, and sunsetting. UO should select and maintain a portfolio of enterprise information technology services that are appropriate for their intended scale, interoperate with existing services as appropriate, optimize campus effectiveness and efficiency, and reduce duplication of effort.
